CNN’s Chris Cuomo Weighs in on Antifa And What He Said is The Definition of Irresponsible Journalism

Published

Apparently there’s a double standard in the mainstream media when it comes to holding folks on the fringe of the left accountable for their wicked acts of violence. Shocking, right? Not really.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo recently stood up in defense of radical left-wing group Antifa, despite their repeated acts of violence and threats made against the life of the president, slamming folks for comparing them to Nazis, despite the fact being they are essentially two sides to the same coin.

If it’s okay to bash on Nazis, and it totally is, then it’s okay to bash on Antifa too.

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo said late Monday that Antifa should not be equated with white supremacists, arguing that “in a clash between hate & those who oppose it, those who oppose it are on the side of right” even if they resort to “petty violence.”

“You attack cops, you slap the media, you are in the wrong, period,” Cuomo said in a commentary on “Cuomo Prime Time.” “But I argue to you tonight all punches are not equal morally.”

“In the eyes of the law, yes. But in the eyes of good and evil, here’s the argument: If you’re a punk that comes to start trouble in a mask and hurt people you’re not about any virtuous cause,” he continued. “You’re just somebody that’s going to be held to the standard of doing something wrong.”

“But when someone comes to call out bigots and it gets hot, even physical, are they equally wrong as the bigot they’re fighting? I argue no. … Fighting matters, too, there’s no question about that. But drawing a moral equivalency between those espousing hate and those fighting it, because they both resort to violence emboldens hate, legitimizes hateful belief and elevates what should be stamped out.”

“Antifa or whomever … or malcontent or misguided, they are also wrong to hit, but fighting hate is right,” Cuomo said later. “And in a clash between hate and those who oppose it, those who oppose it are on the side of right.”

“That’s why people who show up to fight against bigots are not to be judged the same as the bigots,” he said, “even if they do resort to the same petty violence. … We should be our best. But I am arguing Trump is wrong to create a moral equivalency between bigots and those who oppose them, making them equal wrongs. Those hateful few who take solace and encouragement from the president’s efforts, my message to you is simple: Be aware there are many of us who see you as unequal.”

In other words, what he’s really trying to say is, it’s perfectly acceptable to be violent and out of control, so long as you are a raging liberal. If you are a conservative, that same kind of behavior makes you a racist, sexist, bigot.

Yeah, that doesn’t make a lick of sense. Violence is violence and without a justified reason for it, like self-defense, it’s wrong. Period. Regardless of who uses it.

There are plenty of ways we can express political grievances without resorting to name calling and death threats. Out of all the irresponsible journalism to come out of CNN, this might take the taco.

Hail to the chief!

President Trump may no longer work from behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t planning something big to keep the MAGA movement alive. Here’s the latest on 45, via Washington Examiner: WEST PALM BEACH, Florida — Former President Donald Trump gave nothing away about his plans for life after the White House as he dined with friends at his golf club on Friday. “We’ll do something, but not just yet,” he told the Washington Examiner as he sat at his regular table in the Grill Room of the Trump International Golf Club. An aide to the former chief executive then swooped in and swiftly, but politely, ended the interaction. CONTINUED: Trump has let it be known that he is considering another run for the White House in 2024. Reports also suggested that he was considering setting up a new party, the Patriot Party, as a vehicle to run for office. He brought a small staff with him to Florida. They are working out of the Mar-a-Lago club as they begin to ramp up operations.

UNITY!

If Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez loved history (or her country), she would’ve been in attendance at the inauguration on January 20 – however fraudulent it may be. You’d think someone like AOC would want to see history being made when Kamala Harris was sworn-in as the first female vice president – however fraudulent it may be, also. Instead, the loudmouth from the Bronx decided to push her style of “unity” by saying Republicans are dangerous. Swell. From The Daily Wire: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said during an interview on Thursday night that part of the reason that she did not attend President Joe Biden’s inauguration was because she does not feel safe around Republicans. “You knew that people would ask why you weren’t there,” CNN host Chris Cuomo said. “This was a good cause, from your perspective, of dealing with your constituency. But this was supposed to be a show of force, and unity, and you weren’t there. Explain it.” She blabbered, “Yeah, you know, I think we also had very real security concerns as well, as you mentioned earlier. We still don’t yet feel safe around other Members of Congress and…” VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfnj-mjqJf8&feature=emb_title
